Getting to know you…
We walk you through every step of the resume writing process from beginning to end. Some people are overwhelmed and frustrated because they’ve been working on their resume for weeks—or even months—and still feel it lacks impact. Others know that resume writing isn’t their forte; but they also have a firm idea of what they’d like their resume to look and sound like. No matter where you are in the process (either you have no resume at all, or you’ve got one already in progress), we’ll meet you right there.
Once you submit your order online we’ll schedule a time for a personalized and thorough telephone consultation to get to know you and your career goals better. This initial consultation will last approximately 60-90 minutes. We’ll want to know your goals for your career, positions and/or companies of interest, your employment history—and your passions, talents, and interests. When we finish this call you’ll have a good idea of the resume strategy we’re going to use—and you can expect to see your proof for review in 3-5 business days.
Resume Creation & Collaboration
If you’ve seen any resume design elements on our samples page that you’re particularly drawn to, please let us know. Although we create each resume from scratch, if there are certain design styles you prefer, we can certainly incorporate portions of those elements into your new professionally developed resume. Our goal is that no two resumes ever look or sound alike. This is usually very easy since you have your own unique story and background.
Once your telephone consultation is complete we’ll put together all the information and start the resume writing and development process. If we have any questions we’ll call or e-mail you to clarify. If you recall anything after the consultation that you feel is important to the development of the resume, please feel free to e-mail or call your writer as soon as you can, and we’ll be sure to incorporate it into the resume.
Once your writer finishes the proof it goes to the editor for proofreading—an expert who ensures flawless content/text. After he gives his stamp of approval, I (Jessica Hernandez, President/CEO) will review it from a HR perspective to ensure it clearly communicates to the hiring manager/employer your value and personal brand. We use a team approach on the back end of our process to ensure that your resume has maximum impact and a high response rate once you start sending it out. Once our initial review is complete (during the 3-5 business days), we’ll send the proof to you for review.
Resume Review & Editing
We’ll send you a Word document proof of the resume for you to review within 3-5 business days of your telephone consultation. Take your time to review the resume thoroughly and note any changes you’d like to have made. We edit every day Monday-Friday and can often have your revisions completed and back for your review within 24 hours or less. We don’t limit the number of revisions (within reason)—we just ask that you submit them all at one time. Then we’ll make the changes and send the documents back for your review and approval.
After you review and approve the changes, we’ll complete one final proofread, finalize the documents, and send them to you in Microsoft Word, PDF, and ASCII plain text versions.
Let’s Get You Out There!
Once your resume and other documents are completed, make sure you’re getting the exposure you need by having your resume distributed to the recruiters in your industry who are filling positions in your area. We can send a copy of your resume and cover letter to recruiters and executive search firms who are filling positions in your industry, as well as for location and target salary range. Completing a recruiter distribution gives you maximum exposure and launches your job search immediately. Learn more about recruiter distribution.
